I found that getting those 4L bottled distilled water from supermarkets is the best choice for my betta fish.
I blame myself everytime when I have fish dropped dead right after changing the water.
I used to use those water conditioners for betta fish.
But I found that it is economical and stable to use distilled water.
Do you agree?

I echo @RussellTheShihTzu 's comments. Distilled water can be used to top off an established aquarium but is absolutely unacceptable as the sole water source, lacking the essential life-supporting elements necessary for supporting aquatic life. I cannot imagine why you were having losses when changing water before unless you were doing 100% changes which are not advised to begin with.

Thank you for the advise. I won't learn if I don't ask.
I won't be using distilled water from now on.
I applaud your asking and appreciate your desire to learn. You'll be a seasoned pro in no time.
